NEW FERRY NEXT WEEK

FERRY

Good news for Riverland motorists and transport operators as the Walker Flat ferry is soon to be upgraded.

As a part of an upgrade program timber hulled ferries have been replaced along the river with the new Ferry “boobook” to enter service next week.

Motorists are advised however in order to facilitate the ferry change the Walker flat ferry will be out of use from 9am the 16th of October until 4pm Wednesday the 17th of October.

Ferries have been operating in South Australia since 1839 and have formed a vital part of the South Australian road network.
